Michael Carrick is certain Sir Alex Ferguson will not be disappointed if he does throw his youngsters into Wednesday night's Carling Cup quarter-final with Crystal Palace.

With injuries biting deep into his midfield reserves, Ferguson has confirmed he will hand 18-year-old France youth international Paul Pogba his full debut at Old Trafford. After substitute appearances at Leeds and Aldershot in earlier rounds, Pogba is set to get his chance from the start, with others, such as Larnell Cole and Ravel Morrison, itching for their opportunity too.

After working with them on the training ground these past few months, Carrick said: "I would back them to produce, definitely. They certainly have the talent."
